4 out of 5 eggsWorked fine for four years

Pros: Quiet, plenty of connectors and power, looks good.

Cons: Is starting to fail on me after four years of running flawlessly. Computer occasionally will not POST due to a lack of power being supplied to the GPU.

Other Thoughts: This PSU is not modular, and also has very long cables with a lot of connectors. Make sure you have ample room for cable management.

2 out of 5 eggsCougar A Series

Pros: Looks nice

Cons: Died after a year and a half. Popped and blew.

Other Thoughts: You'd think for a little bit more pricey psu it would last longer. I spent $30 on a logisys psu that lasted 5 years.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat works great

Pros: Cheap
lots of power
Works

Cons: Not modular
Isn't free

Other Thoughts: The only thing I don't like is that it isn't modular, and that in part is my fault for not looking for a modular power supply in the first place, it still works fine and powers all my part sfine

1 out of 5 eggsNot 760W, maybe 500W

Pros: This psu is very quiet and is well built. Has lengthy cables for big cases.

Cons: DOES NOT PROVIDE ADVERTISED POWER.

Other Thoughts: My system is not very demanding, as a 750W psu should power it up no problem. However, this psu just caused too many stability issues even when only one of my graphics cards is connected.

My rig:
-Intel Pentium G3258 @4.3Ghz with Hyper 212 EVO
-MSI Z97 U3 Plus motherboard
-Crusial M500 SSD
-2X Sapphire Dual-X R9 270 @ 1050Mhz clock, 1500Mhz mem
-NZXT CA-S220W-B1 case
